Missed Posting the Tuesday Trigger and Red Herring"...Darn Internet Service!

Good morning! I am trying to quickly post this while I still can get on the Internet. VERIZON has the worst customer service around, and I can not wait to find a new internet service provider. My service is the WORST!! But on to better stuff!...

My son's high school put on this play last week, and they were sooo good!!!
I wish you could take photos, but you can't.... Go Mr. Rothstein, Go Drama Club!!!

Although I was too late to link to this Tuesday Trigger, I'm posting it anyway. My internet service would not connect me, so I was unable to post. That really annoyed me, but what can you do?
Here's the Trigger...

Here's my take on it!
I know I haven't made my usual visits to all my peeps blogs. I will hopefully get there through this week. My service is spotty, and I have had so much going on between work and my son and his school, when I try to get on frequently I can not connect. I have to travel soon, and I am also trying to prepare for that. OK, it's past time for me to get to work!.... : )

Thanks for stopping by...I REALLY appreciate your comments!
Gotta get a NEW internet service SOON!!!

Tuesday Trigger: Oh So Lovely!

Hello, I know everyone doesn't have young children. Mine is just about out of high school. But he still goes to a Pediatrician, and he pointed out this sign to me in her office on our last visit. Of course he wanted to pick and choose the numbers he wanted me to read...
Check it out for yourself (Please do enlarge) lol


OK, Here's my favorite challenge, the Tuesday Trigger photo from the Moxie Fab site... I think it is just gorgeous. Now I'm a real rookie when it comes to distressing. That was what I tried to do. I still need lot's of practice. lol...

Tuesday Trigger and Spring Challenges!

Quote for today:

I try...I do try.

Good morning! Well, what can I say...I just LOVE the Tuesday Trigger over at Movie Fab. And it's Saturday, and I have loads of stuff to do, but I just had to finish my trigger card...Hope you like it! I made it for two very special friends!

Here's the trigger...

Here's my take...
I decided to paper piece my boots. I always wanted to try that, and it was so cool. I actually used a shiny white paper for the bottom of the boots. I know it doesn't look like it, though.
I think before I mail it I will add some liquid glass to them to make them really shiny. : )
I bought both of these stamp sets at a convention long ago and always wanted to use them, but just never did. So I'm grateful for this trigger. Because it triggered my memory of those boots! lol Also, I was gonna color the soles darker, but I did not want the eye to be drawn to the bottom of the boots immediately, I want you to take in the whole picture. : )

Details coming soon. : )

I gotta get outta here, it's time for me to pick up my son! : )
Thanks for checking me out. Hope to see you again soon.
